This time last year, I couldn't run down the driveway and today, I completed a 5K along side my running buddy, Amber. I ran the first half mile continuously, completed the first mile in 11:27 and the whole race in 35:07.
Amber and I are so proud of our accomplishment and I can't believe I've been running 3-5 times a week since April. (There have been occasional hiccups in that time.) 7 months in, and I'm still going strong. Even stronger now that I know I can push myself and I won't die. I don't think there will be any marathons in my future, but we're already looking for another 5k to run!
Can't wait to get out there in the morning and push myself.
